Washington > Christmas Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, 10-Mile & 1-Mile
Littlerock, WA • Saturday, December 24, 2011 • Course Map
Set for its first-ever running on the morning of Christmas Eve 2011, Littlerock's Christmas Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, 10-Mile & 1-Mile race will take runners on an out-and-back run that starts and finishes in this small Washington town that lies just a short drive south from Olympia, for a race that will no doubt allow runners to enjoy their Christmas dinners guilt-free.
The race will take runners on an out-and-back course that starts and finishes at Posse Hall on Maytown Road in Littlerock, an unincorporated community that lies just east of Capitol State Forest and a little over an hour's drive from the Seattle-Tacoma area. Organizers say the course is about 70 percent flat roads for both the full and the half marathons, and what hills there are on the course are mostly only gently rolling hills.
Runners will start the race at 10:30 AM, and organizers add that walkers are welcome in all six races in the event -- the time limit for the full marathon is 5 hours.
